TREND #01 — NEO-TRAINING

What we foresee

In such a context, educational systems have to move forward: from the current focus on hard skills — with teaching methods based on repetition, learning by heart and restitution- we need to move towards soft skills learning such as empathy, listening capacity, adaptation etc…

Meanwhile, we absolutely need to train our own capacity to adapt to change et renew ourselves throughout life, refreshing our skills according to technological and societal evolutions.

A trend towards relentless training is already visible in the rising interest in senior-centric training programs, in alternative education routes such as apprenticeship or lifelong training and in Gen Yers’ desire for self-actualisation in the workplace and beyond. Such expectations are pushing for the employer to become a true lifelong educator.

Weak signals to look at : 3M, initiative from Indian government and National University of Singapore.

  • Starting this year, National University of Singapore students have the option to design their learning journey. Groups of at least 10 students will be able to submit a proposal of course modules. Once approved, students can then invite industry experts as tutors or select courses from MOOC platforms. In doing so, the National University of Singapore aims at giving students greater ownership over their future career by pursuing subjects the University doesn’t usually offer — for example, blockchain technology or sustainability.
  • Skill India is a campaign launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 15 July 2015 which aims to train over 40 million Indians to new STEM skills by 2022. The objective is to enable a large number of Indian youth to take up industry-relevant skill training. Fees are completely paid by the Government.
